Students excelling in science

Maj. Gregory Turner, a member of the Fort Irwin Martin H. Cesana Chapter of the Army Engineer Association, speaks with Tiefort View Intermediate School 4th grader Liberty Smith about her science experiment, March 14. Her experiment focusing on the effect of water color on evaporation rates was one of 197 completed by the school’s 4th and 5th grade students. The local Engineer Association members volunteered to participate in the judging of the competition.

“The science fair was an amazing challenge that many of the students approached with genuine enthusiasm,” Turner said. “It was exciting to see the creativity it took for the kids to put together the projects and the real learning that came naturally as part of the process.”

Tiefort View Intermediate School 5th Grade Science Fair winners, Abrianna Johnson, Danielle Flores, Ivianna Montemayor and Kennady Leifson pose for a picture with Maj. Gregory Turner and Lt. Col. Edward M. Apostol, members of the Fort Irwin Martin H. Cesana Chapter of the Army Engineer Association, at the school here, March 14. The students produced four of the 197 experiments completed by the school’s 4th and 5th Grade students. The science fair is part of the school’s education program designed to increase awareness and interest in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects amongst the students and local community.

Get a refund for gasoline taxes

The California gasoline tax refund could save you hundreds of dollars every year.
